's vital for us to help them. you know, when a young man or young woman who deserves to go to college doesn't because they can't afford it, they lose, their family loses, and our country loses as well. when a young person goes to the college they shouldn't really go to because they can't afford the college they deserve to go to and want to go to, they lose, their family loses, and america loses. and so it's been a passion of mine that we give the middle class, not just the poor but the middle class as well, help in paying for college because it is so expensive but it is so important. and so we have in law now something called the child -- the american opportunity tax credit. it's legislation i wrote. it helped 9.1 million 235e78s get a -- families get a tax break on their children's college tuition last year. because of the american opportunity tax credit, more parents and students now qualify for tax relief to pay for college expenses, not just for two years but for a whole four years of study. it gives a $2,500 tax credit right off your taxes to families whose income is up to $180,000 a y

that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an
